2006 Volvo S80 2.5T 4dr Sedan (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
I can't say enough positive things about this car. Granted my old car was a 1998 Maxima with 160K miles. Comfortable, quiet, handles well. Could use more acceleration but it has enough for me. Averaging 25/32 MPG city/hwy - I use cruise control a lot. Chose this over BWM 525i, Lexus ES 330, Jaguar XJ8, Infiniti G35, Lincoln LS - I drove a lot of cars. The S80 was the best combination of comfort, features, reliability, and price.
Smooth, quiet, very comfortable for long road trips. Responsive cruise control. Excellent braking. Power when needed. Quality leather. Certified warranty. Price!
